Contract / Commercial Advice

Contract Negotiation and Interpretations

For 25 years we have provided the best cost effective fixed price commercial advice on all business contracts, in both review and preparation, in Western Australia and on all of the commercial risks that need to be considered.  We have advised individuals and businesses of all sizes, small and large, and several national financial institutions since 1994.

Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our hourly rates are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms.  Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms.

Feel free to telephone Marcus Ahern any time to discuss your contract needs.  Often face to face meetings are not required.  We are able to provide online legal advice by email generally within 48 hours of receipt of all the necessary documents by email.

We can also assist you with creating distribution agreements.  A Distribution Agreement is a legal document between a supplier and a distributor.  The supplier may be the manufacturer of the goods or the distributor reselling another's goods.  There are exclusive distribution agreements and non-exclusive distribution agreements.  An exclusive distribution agreement is when the supplier agrees to sell their goods exclusively to the distributor.  This comes with terms and conditions often containing sales performance requirements.

It is very important that Distribution Agreements contain sufficient detail to ensure your operations are protected.
